Welcome to the Show

Good day and welcome to this week’s episode of the Nursing Show podcast for nurses, by nurses. I’m your host Jamie Davis and I’d like to take this opportunity to thank you for checking out the show this week. First up, in this week’s nursing news items, we look at how the headlines on new research and drugs adversely affects patients medication compliance. How can we keep our patients on their medication regime?

Then in this week’s special tip segment, we have a special interview with Dr. Denise Aberle, professor of radiology at UCLA and principal investigator of the groundbreaking National Lung Screening Trial, and 12-year-old Julia Cohen who lost her grandfather to lung cancer. The two of them talk about the importance of focusing on fund-raising and research for all cancers including Lung Cancer. We’ll have that and more later in this episode after the news.

If you want to get back in touch with me, please drop me an email. You can send those e-mails in to I love to hear from you and I make sure I respond back to every email that comes in. Send me links to news items you’d like me to cover, interview suggestions with you or somebody you know.

Tip of the Week – Lung Cancer Funding and Giving Back

Lung-Cancer-WordResearch for all cancers is often at the top of people’s fundraising efforts, but some cancer funding is falling short. Lung Cancer funding is falling behind other cancer research and yet this cancer strikes a surprising number of Americans. Lung Cancer is by far the leading cause of cancer death among men and women, claiming more lives than breast, colon, and prostate cancers combined. It kills twice as many women as breast cancer, yet research funding for breast cancer is 5 times GREATER than lung cancer research funding.

In recognition of Lung Cancer Awareness, Dr. Denise Aberle, professor of radiology at UCLA and principal investigator of the groundbreaking National Lung Screening Trial, and 12-year-old Julia Cohen will discuss how the Lung Cancer Foundation of America is working to fund life-saving research. Julia lost her grandfather to lung cancer and started raising funds for new research on the first anniversary of his passing. Together she and Dr. Aberle share stories of hope and how we as nurses can help raise awareness in our communities. Here’s that interview.
